Anyone really intersted in this will take the time to look beyond the Oregonian article to see what the DOE really said.

One of the big complaints coming out of the anti-LNG crowd is the pipelines to transport the LNG to Hillsboro. Yet the DOE says that the longer pipelines from the Rocky Mountains are a better deal. What gives; why would longer pipelines through multiple states be a better option?

"As a whole, North American natural gas production is expected to be flat or decline over the next several years." Page iv of the report.

If demand is expected to increase, and supply is expected to be flat or decline over the next several years, how are pipelines from the Rockies going to supply our increasing demand?
